The Netherworld Oligarchy – Who is Your Government Really Serving?

Netherworld Oligarchy

By  Ethan Indigo Smith

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Before serving your country, first learn who your government is serving.

The New World Order is exactly that  – it is the same old ‘order’ in the new world. The new world is still contracted to the same old formulation of regimentation, which is  achieved by the same violent means of enforced order and patriarchal authority, the same old formulation of the status quo, and the same old oligarchy,  instituted in the new petrolithic and nuclear age by the progressive merging of commerce and state.

The only difference now is that there are “new and improved” modes and destructive war,  resource and media  technologies being used to enforce the rule of the oligarchy. There are new tools and new names.  The ‘order’ is packaged in a new sleek design, with new bells and whistles, but at its core, it is the same war-minded pyramid system, controlled by those the system  benefits the most. Those “authorities” at the top of the pyramid claim to act for  the betterment of mankind, and yet they always  seem to get the better of  mankind.

Historically speaking,  the forced  imposition of beneficial authority is as it  always was. It is text book oligarchical collectivism;  the same formulation of authority used by Empires and Emperors for millennia before us, playing out in a  rapidly  degrading economic, political and environmental setting, It  bears little  difference to those societies that have risen and duly  fallen before us.

The ‘New World’ Environment

Welcome to  the ‘new world’. And with that, welcome to your ‘new world’ environment, one that is poisoned and depleted by the petrolithic and  nuclear industries of the oligarchy. And not just poisoned but radiated,  measurably changing  the quality of our environment for  countless generations yet to come, as  radiation and chemical pollution levels increase worldwide.

When it comes to humanity’s sustainability, the ‘new world’ is a veritable netherworld. The conditions, confines and consequences of petrolithic era and nuclear age are now layered into every strata of the Earth, its system and its inhabitants.  Governed  by power/profit-seeking oligarchy, we seem  destined for a world of  polluted and bereft expanse after expanse, land scoured and mined, water poisoned and air thick with institutional excrement  – the scars of over consumption  –  the consequence of an  irrational intent to build ever-growing commercial systems without regard for future ramifications, and of institutional outcomes  being prioritised over  the rights and needs of living breathing  individuals and the planet we call home. And while the netherworld oligarchies profit from environmental exploitation, increased institutionalization and commercial monopolization, a culture of unquestioning  acceptance is  perpetuated in the name of patriotism by  concealing critical information and delivering mis-information via the “news” media they own and regulate.

Thus, amid  this theater  of democracy, it has become the “norm” in  the petrolithic era and nuclear age for  large scale commercial enterprises to be initiated  without due consideration of consequences. Corrupted commercial  regulatory bodies  have become veils to the oligarchy, rubber stamping their approval for profitable and  dangerous  practices  in industries as broad as  food & agriculture, pharmaceutical, energy, media and mining – as long as they help to achieve  their ends. This is clearly evidenced by the rotating  cast of oligarchs who regularly and strategically interchange between roles as commercial decision-makers and government  regulators (see images).

Netherworld Oligarchy - Media and Government Ties

Ties between Government and centralized mainstream media, the primary mechanism through which (mis)information is spread, social thinking is shaped and and conversation is steered.

These  conditions have  facilitated  what is undoubtedly the biggest, most deceptive ‘doublethink’ dynamic there might ever have been  —  that of global warming. While governments continue to push the manifesto of Agenda 21, the public debate on global warming is, in and of itself, ridiculous.  There is no denying humanity  needs to change its  destructive ways, but  that extends far beyond environmental destruction to our collective intellectual decay. For as long as we allow our thoughts and  conversation to be  steered by the fictions  of  institutional news/media, we can only be digging our way deeper into the netherworld of the oligarchy.

Our corrupted institutions and the institutionalized alike have brought  us to this existence, and to accept this existence, ever on the precipice of our own demise. And yet, in  control of  the ever-pervasive  media, they steer the dynamic of what people  talk about, and how they  think,  to their profit and advantage.

In a  community that is  led by the  wealthy for the wealthy, this continuation of the status quo comes  at the direct cost  of individuals and their basic rights to freedom, peace, and unimpeded access to the planet’s natural resources  – all of  which are treated as  commodities.  We are led to believe our  personal freedoms and livelihood depend on adhering to the status quo, without which  the rights and richness of our natural world cannot be accessed.

But that is part of the illusion that keeps us playing ball. We know we are heading down a dangerous path, and there is no new planet to move on to, no new island to start fresh on once we learn just how dangerous. So in reality, our livelihood, wellbeing and indeed our future existence depends on stopping  the status quo and choosing a new path – fast.

Netherworld Oligarchy - Monsanto and Government Ties

Ties between Government and Monsanto, the chemicals company responsible for DDT, PCBs, Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), Agent Orange, and now genetically modified (ie. patentable) “food” crops.

The ‘New World’ Hierarchy

Institutions are made up of individuals, but they do not act as individuals nor on behalf of individuals. Rather they act  as portions of the institution, for the purpose  of the institution, in the direction determined by  institutional heads, no matter the personal or collective expense (after all, we’re all replaceable, right?)

Institutionalized individuals are capable of switching their institutional jargon and actions on and off, as if machines. When speaking to a reporter, one is sometimes off and other times on the record, depending on whether they are telling the truth or “The Truth ®“. When speaking to different groups, the institutionalized individual is capable of spinning different tunes, and at times, different truths – all in the name of progressing the institution.

In our heavily formalized  society, we have been led to forgot that institutions are empowered by people, and dependent on the cooperation of individuals. Through commercial,  government and media trickery, institutions have instilled a collectivist culture  that simultaneously  steers individuals  to execute the institutional agenda while steering them away from critically understanding and assessing it — or doing anything to change it.

Why do institutions exist if not for people? The idea  of working collectively is to mutually benefit the people, whose combined potential should exceed the capability of the lone individual.  If institutions today were half as dedicated to the betterment of mankind, as most of them claim to be, there would be more acts of kindness  and less need for activism.

Isn’t it time we  reclaim  our  institutions and our natural place in the hierarchy?
